Hungexpo has just completed its AGROmashEXPO, AgrárgépShow with a record-high turnout in 2018. Ending on January 27, the event’s 350 exhibitors showcased their products and services across 40 000 square-metres of space to 46 500 visitors. As part of the event portfolio, the Hungarian Garden and the Viticulture and Winery exhibitions were also held this year.
Constantly growing projects and a dynamic technological development - these are the characteristics of Hungarian agriculture, and this optimism was reflected in the recently completed exhibition, where domestic and foreign producers displayed their latest products and services across 40 000 square meters of floor space. A new 3 000 square meter tent was added to the exhibition area to accommodate the growing numbers of exhibitors and visitors. Covering nearly 2 500 square metres, the joint exhibition of the members of the Hungarian Association of Agricultural Machinery Manufacturers (MEGOSZ) was a huge success.
The results of our quick preliminary poll of exhibitors revealed that the number of business deals made this year greatly exceeded the already high numbers of previous years.
